Do you have electronic eye at the base of the door track. sometimes they may have been twisted and will prevent the door from opening. this is a saftey device. make sure they are both pointing at each other. Also check if somethong is blocking the view from the elec eye. this is easier than it sounds. A question for you, does this happen all the time. some times if the sunlite is directly on the elect eye it will not work. stand outside and block the sun from hiting it and it may work. You may want to check if the wires are connected to the elec eyes.

The utomatic garage door does not work; only works manually. The motor is working because I can hear it.


It sounds like a gear is stripped in the gearbox which will caus the mechanism not to turn.

I Have a Liftmaster Professional Formula 1 garage door opener. When we press button on wall or garage door opener, we hear the motor going but the garage door doesn't do anything. Do I need a new opener?


Hi,
There is a rope or string hanging down that releases the dog that hooks the door to the chain...if someone pulled that the door will not open. You need to pull down and back on the srting to relaese the dog and then push the door up to catch the chain...then the door will work again...

I had a lightening strike at my home. Since then, the garage door does not function with wall switch or remotes. when i press the switch, light comes ON on the door opener and i hear a click but nothing...


Well, I don't think that disconnecting the garage door from the garage door opener would affect function.

The lightning strike could have destroyed the circuitry inside the garage door opener, seeing that it won't operate with the wall switch or remotes.

It's likely that a board was fried by the lightning which would render the garage door inoperable.

Liftmaster 1/3hp garage door opener


When i try opening the garage door from the wall button the door only opens 3 inches or so, then stop but makes several loud clicking noises. I've played around with the travel limits as well as the open force switch but the same thing keeps happening. Any suggestions?

MY GARAGE WILL NOT COME UP WITH REMOTE,BUT SIGNAL IS THERE LIGHT BLINKS WHEN I PRESS BUTTON


Try to give as much information as possible. Does the garage door open when you press the button on the wall?
Do you have power at the plug? Do you hear the motor running, could be a broken belt? Try to search a little deeper then let me know. I'll try to help the best I can.

The shaft on these garage door motors are not direct drive systems. You'll have to open up the box to see what the actual problem is. I have had stuff like this happen where a gear just slipped out of place.

Here is a link for a parts supplier. I don't know your model but it looks like most of the Liftmaster worm screw gears and drive gears are plastic so it's possible that one of them has cracked.

UNPLUG THE UNIT TO RESET
TRY TO OPERATE MOTOR. IF IT STILL FLASHES 5 TIMES AND THE MOTOR MOVES 5-6 INCHES, CHECK THE RPM SENSOR - A LITTLE CUP ON THE MOTOR SHAFT WITH A SENSOR.
IF MOTOR DOESN'T OPERATE AT ALL MOTOR MAY BE OVERHEATED - WAIT 30 MIN. & TRY AGAIN. IF THE MOTOR STILL DOESN'T MOVE IT IS MOST LIKEKY A BAD CIRCUIT BOARD.

on the back of your garage door opener there is a colored learn button--press and release-the learn indicator light will glow for a short time usually 30 seconds. within thirty seconds press and hold the buton on the hand held remote that you wish to operate your garage door. release the button when the motor unit lights blink. if you don;t have a light, two clicks will be heard. it has learned the code. procedure will be different for multi function control.

Craftsman Garage Opener Clicks only and LED blinking 5 times


Just fixed this problem tonight. Had the 5 blink/flash thing. Opened it up and saw that the motor wasn't spinning so it wasn't a bad rpm sensor. Jumped the red to black and then the blue to black to verify motor worked. At that point assumed it was the logic board not telling the motor to start, but I could hear the click of the relay. Pulled the logic board out and noticed a solder joint that had failed directly behind one of the relays. Resoldered that joint and the garage door opener worked again like a dream. Hope that helps someone else.
